Booo hiss.... Vipers shoot like 40mm rounds not lasers

Wow, that was really well done. One HUGE problem though... The Colonial Fleet would be debris before the first warhead hit the lead SD. I didn't see any turbolaser fire in that vid.

Maybe they thought it would be more sporting if they just let the fighters play.

That was pretty cool.

The colonial fleet would be swept from space by the Imperial Fleet........easy win

Death Star. Sun Crusher. PLANETARY Shields. A history of space navy combat dating back 25,000 years.

Oh, and funny feeling the Imperials have nukes too. In museams.

wll the thing is they werent true to BSG. the entirety of the mil fleet excpt for the BSG was destroyed so i think it wouldnt have even been a battle. BSG wouldve been captured.

pretty sure that is new show footage not 1978 but yes you are right lasers in the old show
New show tracer goodness

They have showed them loading up cased/belted rounds into the vipers many times on the new show

Vipers would mop the floor with the TIEs. The TIEs do not have the maneuverability, range, or acceleration that the Vipers do.

Battlestars would get thrashed by the Star Destroyers like a CV going up against a BB.

Agree with the second point. But the first? The Imperial Starfleet has a whole lot more than simple Tie Fighters. Interceptors, V-wings, ARC-170s, TIE Advanced (and its many iterations). Then you have the gunboats, Victory Star Destroyers, Republic era star destroyers (forget what they are called), thousands upon thousands of Dreadnaughts. Even Spacetroopers. Honestly, nothing of the Colonial Fleet would have a chance.

And we are what, a month and a half from Battlestar Galactica: Razor, and like 4 1/2 months out from BSG?

The Adeptus Astartes laugh at this topic.

Considering that the whole premise is inconsistent with the show my answer to that is, well, BSG is just a TV show...

I think the exercise was interesting. Hell, even the music selection was good.

Colonials have nukes.


And the Imperial ships have shields.

The side with the shields win.

I'm a big fan of the new show, but I've seen enough of the old to realize it was terrible!
